A friendly stay during the day, home with you at night!
We have implemented a very unique day care system, so your pup can spend as much time outdoors as possible. The day campers at the Bed and Biscuit spend the day running, playing, and socializing in supervised playgroups. We have two separate grassy play yards, totaling 1 acre, fenced around with 8’ high security fence, also a 2500 sq’ covered yard for those rainy or snowy days. The dogs will be given several rest times in their private rooms between the outdoor play sessions. By rotating play time and rest time, we ensure dogs are never overly tired or stressed. Because each dog’s personality and play style is different, dogs are divided into small groups of no more than 12, this allows us to give the dogs a lot more personal attention and a lot smaller dog per handler ratio. Groups of dogs are alternated throughout the day so each group gets individualized attention and activity when they are out and quality rest time when they are not. Each play session lasts at least 30-40 minutes as weather permitting, which is typically the length of time most dogs can play before needing to rest.
When is daycare available?
Tuesday thru Thursday, year-round except for the holidays and the weeks of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Drop-off is between 7:30am and 9:30am and pick-up is between 5:30pm and 7:00pm. Earlier drop off or pick up is available by appointment only and is subject to availability.
Are there requirements to attend daycare?
Yes, this is a list of what we require for your pup to stay at our country club.
- All dogs must be on a flea prevention program (flea collars are not allowed).
- All dogs must have current vaccinations for DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus), Bordetella and Rabies.
- All dogs must have been part of their family for at least 30 days.
- All dogs must be neutered or spayed.

How many dogs are in a group?
Because each dog’s personality and play style are different, dogs are divided into small groups of no more than 12. This allows us to give the dogs a lot more personal attention. Also, a smaller dog-to-handler ratio is proven to be safest. Groups of dogs are alternated throughout the day so each group gets individualized attention and activity when they are out and quality rest time when they are not.
Will my dog just play all day?
Between each outdoor play session, your dog will be given a chance to rest and recharge in their private rooms. We rotate playtime and rest time to ensure that your dog is never overly tired or stressed.’
How long is each session?
Each play session lasts about 30-40 minutes, which is typically the length of time most dogs can play before needing to rest.
What if it's really rainy, snowy or cold?
We have a beautiful covered play area for those days when Mother Nature gives us a lot of rain or snow. We make sure your dog gets toasty warm again after each play session, and our rooms even have heated floors to keep those precious paws comfortable!
How much does daycare cost?
$22 per day. $21 per day with a five(5) day package. $20 per day with a ten(10) day package.
